Comments/Citation
I served with Phil on LZ Baldy. I was a young Captain and he was the motor officer. We hit it off from the beginning and I used to spend every night down at his hooch playing cards and listening to country music. He liked country, but I was from the north and was not a big fan. We had a lot of fun with that cultural difference. I remember we loved to sing "The Carroll County Accident" when it came on the radio.

Phil was without a doubt my best friend in Nam. I left Baldy to go home on May 13 and he was killed that night. That was my worst memory from Viet Nam.

They just don't make them any better than Phil.
